I have a Sony DVP-NS70H CD/DVD player that plays just about everything so I assume I can.

Much appreciated. I'll be getting my NEC 42XR4 this week and I'll want to use this to break it in and look for stuck/dead pixels.

The link for the download is broken. Could someone else put this file up on their server?

HistoneMaster,
Sorry, I've been dragging my feet on finding someone to host this file for us. MY FTP server is down so I can not host it. Send me a PM with your email and I can email it to you tonight. Same goes for anyone else who wants a copy. It is a relatively small file (a few mb like a mp3). As soon as I find a host I will update the links. Sorry for the delay.

I guess after several downloads, geocities will no longer allow connectivity to your page as it has exceeded traffic limits.

Hey Guys,
OK, I now have the file hosted. Please follow dirctions in the first post. It may take 24-48 hours for the DNS to filter down if the site does not come up for you.

I downloaded the file just fine and it will run on the Nero software on my PC, but when I place it in my DVD player it won't run. My DVD player recognizes the disk as a SVCD, but the images will not show up on my 26" Maxent LCD. Not sure what the problem is. I plan to purchase the 42" Visio Plasma on Monday from Costco and want to use this program to break it in. My PC video card has a DVI out. Maybe I should run this SVCD through my PC to the Visio DVI. Any ideas?

Hmmm, strange CW. I am running the SVCD on a Pioneer Elite DV59 AVi. Should pretty much be compatable with any SVCD. What DVD player do you have?

I now watch pretty much everything; and just try to mix it up HD/SD/DVDs.


Which screen format did you choose while playing the svcd? Also, which contrast/brightness levels did you choose? Thanks in advance.

I have a Pioneer Plasma so my settings may be different than yours. I basically had 1 set of settings saved that were calibrated with AVIA. I had another set where the brightness and Contrast were 1/2-2/3 the level of AVIA that I used while running the breakin DVD. I did this for the extremely slim chance my dvd player screwed up and displayed some message while I wasn't around. Please note, no such thing happened
All of the images are based on native 720p resolution images of solid colr screns. I ran the output from my DVD player at 720p. Hope this helps.

kparker,
If nobody gets back to you, just turn down the brightness and contrast for the first 100 hours regardless of using the breakin svcd or not. No reason why the disc shouldn't work because it only disaplys full screen solid colors.
You amy also want to try and PM wojtek since Im sure he diesn't check this thread that often.

Evangelo2 - I do check the thread out once in a while...

Your anti-burn-in software worked very well on my Panny 50PHD-8UK. I'd recommend it to anyone.

No sight of burn-in after a few months watching 50/50 4:3 and 18:9. I don't care what aspect ratio I watch anymore.

It seems that the new Pannys are burn-in resistant. I would not worry about burn-in AT ALL if I were a newbie and used your disc for 100 hours.

i downloaded the image file and burned it to disc...just waiting for my tv to arrive to start breaking it in. I guess I'll just turn down the contrast and brightness and play the dvd. Thanks for all the help.

Just a thought. If your goal is to cook each pixel for 100 hours and you are alternating three colors you have to run it for 300 hours. Using white will accomplish the goal in less time and with less power usage.

Not sure if you can change the project from SVCD to VCD. You can always hooke a computer or laptop up to your plasma and play it through there but I never did that.

sktAVS,
My original idea was to more closely simulate watching full widescreen programming. The full widescreen programming changes color so I stuck with the primary colors. I guess I may have been able to do all white but that drives the plasma harder and I did not want to do that for long extended hours.

Sadly, I didn't catch on to the whole Burn-In process before I started watching my new Vizio P42HDTV. It has been used for about 25 or so hours off and on at various levels of programming (bars on top/bottom and sides for extended preiods). Even more sadly, I had the contrast and brightness turned up kinda high to meet with some suggested settings. I am not seeing a hint of PQ degredation, thankfully. Turned down the contrasts and brightness and will run this at night (work from home so I can't not watch it during the day :P ) untill I hit 100 hours.

Is this the best route, or have I possibly already screwed myself?

I assume that since I am not seeing any PQ issues, I am fine.

Yea that would be nice... I have Nero 7. Can anybody confirm that when you download it you can just click it and burn it or do you need to open nero and create a SVCD and then drag the file over?

I did both and its still not working corectly... Im getting kind of frustrated....

TIA
